Amber Taverns retains Shepherd to find new sites for pubs in Scotland

UK pub company Amber Taverns has retained Shepherd Chartered Surveyors to find new sites for pubs throughout Scotland.

The firm is looking for sites in Aberdeen, Airdrie, Ayr, Dunfermline, Dundee, Edinburgh and suburbs, Falkirk, Glasgow, Greenock, Hamilton, Irvine, Motherwell, Perth, Rutherglen and Stirling.

Gary Louttit, Head of Hospitality & Leisure at Shepherd, said: “We’re looking for freehold only pubs on High Street locations with a minimum ground floor area of 175 sq m.

“We’re seeking pubs, either open or closed, as well as retail or restaurant outlets that are suitable for conversion.

“We’re also interested in other suitable non-licensed buildings, premises with space for a flat upstairs in non-city centre locations and outlets with an outside area or space to create a beer garden.”

Sam Frankland, Property Director at Amber Taverns, said: “We pride ourselves in providing a high quality of hospitality and service in our venues, while giving great value for money in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.

“We are unique in that we offer an operator agreement to all our licensees and through the operator agreement our licensees are incentivised to develop the business.”

Amber Taverns currently has more than 160 public houses across England, Wales and Scotland. Anyone with potential sites and opportunities should contact Gary Louttit on 0141 331 2807.
